What: Las Vegas RSA Virtual Salon
Where: Rob Roy’s Innevation Center
When: Thursday, May 24th (9:00am – 10:30am)
Technology is forcing us to reconsider our relationship to an ever increasing artificial offering. What adjustments should we be making? What changes can be expected? Will advances in AI and blockchain take us out of our humanity or re-connect us with a new framework for ethical decision making?
Join FRSAs Zoe Camper (Las Vegas), Jonathan Tavss (Los Angeles), Dean Donaldson (London) and Steve Ardire (Washington D.C.) in a virtual fireside roundtable discussing where we’ll explore the implication and considerations from varied lenses.
These RSA fellows will dig deep into the relationship between society and topics such as AI, blockchain, ethics, workforce, robotics, and systems surfacing the larger issues and concerns that all of us in the tech community must solve together. Camper, Tavss and Donaldson will explore a number of questions, including:
To what extent are AI and blockchain transforming the course of human evolution?
Are we on the cusp of an explosive new evolutionary moment, or is this something we’ve seen before?
How do we best prepare industry and government for the advances in AI and blockchain?
What impact do these technologies have on democracy, privacy, employment and industry?
